Participated in a letter (with the Reporters Committee and other media groups) sent to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts’ Committee on Rules of Practice and Procedure.  The letter recommends that Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure be amended to make clear that district courts may exercise their inherent supervisory authority, in appropriate circumstances, to permit the disclosure of grand jury materials to the public.  The letter also recommends that Rule 6(e) be further amended to incorporate the non-exhaustive list of factors identified by the Second Circuit in Craig v. United States, which allow courts flexibility to balance the public interest in disclosure with grand jury secrecy on a case-by-case basis.  [2020]
